Good Morning Everybody,
Hope everyone had a great weekend – I know the east coast was awash with Hurricane Irene so I hope all of you made it through safe and sound and are high and dry for the rest of the week.
I can’t believe it – only one week till Photoshop World. Yep, we head to Las Vegas on Sunday morning. I’m kicking off with my sold out Pre-Con wedding shoot on Tuesday, two more programs on Wednesday and Thursday and something like 5-6 booth appearances – it’s going to be one busy week. But, you know, it’s still one of the most fun, while gaining AWESOME information, conventions we attend. I sure hope you’ll come up and say “HI” if you are in the neighborhood.
Hey gang, I’ve got a couple of cools things to announce today so why don’t we get started.
FREE Webcast Coming Up: Social Media Marketing – Do It Or Die!
I’ll tell you, last month at our PhotoPro Summer School, I asked A.J. Wood to fly in and be one of my presenters – his topic, Social Media Marketing. All the speakers got “RAVE” reviews but A.J. really hit it out of the park – people LOVED his program and the wealth of knowledge he shared!
I just talked to A.J. last week and asked him if he could reprise his fabulous program again for our DigitalProTalk readers and all members of PhotoPro Network. He gladly obliged. Program Synopsis below:
Social Media Marketing – Do It Or Die!
When: September 22, 2011
Time: 3:00 p.m. EDT; 12:00 p.m. Pacific
A.J. has built a business as a consultant on Social Media marketing. Like it or not – you’ve got to get up to speed on social media marketing or you will be left in the dust by the competition. Those who do it best have transformed their businesses and “smoked” the competition.
A.J. will point you towards the best strategies and clever shortcuts used by the social media experts. He’ll show you how it can work for you and probably much more easily than you imagined. If you want to grow your business in the 21th century, this is an essential program to see.
You don’t want to miss A.J.’s encore performance!

Well, over at Gigapixel what you see is not what you get! What’s really fun is that these images are GIGABITS BIG and contain tons in information which means you can zoom into the image. Now look at the second image. I did a quick screen grab of just a small part of the image – way cool.
